What will the Seattle real estate market look like eight years from now? Not much different than it does today, if “Parks & Recreation” is to be believed.
For those who have been living in a TV culture vacuum for the last seven years, Parks & Recreation was an NBC TV show about local government and politics in a small fictional Indiana town. Although the show never really ventured to the west coast, they managed to slip a 30-second gag about the Seattle real estate market into their series finale last week.
I got a laugh out of it, anyway. Although, the thought that “giant commission checks” will still be common for real estate agents nearly a decade from now is somewhat depressing to someone who would like to see more disruption in that part of the market.
